This course is a basic introduction to time and motion programs and tools to challenge management’s job standards. Participants receive hands-on and in-class experience to understand and learn to challenge the way that management sets production standards using both stop watch and predetermined time standard systems (PTS). This course provides participants with a basic appreciation of how a union production standards person or a worker representative can ensure work measurements are not done at the expense of worker health and safety. Instructors include experienced Unifor production standard representatives and staff.
Occasionally, Time Study programs are offered that are sector-specific, i.e. major auto, auto parts, warehousing etc. When these sector-specific programs are offered, the program schedule reflects it accordingly.
